A diverse break that will get you excited for the Christmas season, including festive visits to a city, castle and pretty country town, all from your hotel in a beautiful National Park.
On your first full day in Germany you will visit the Christmas markets in Cologne. A historic city that offers seven Christmas markets scattered across the city in many wonderful locations. The main four of these are located in Cologne Cathedral, the Alter Markt, the Neumarkt and on the Rudolfplatz. Every year these markets attract two million tourists to their festive markets and once you experience it you will understand why. The Christmas market that is particularly idyllic and well worth a visit, is the one on the Alter Markt, with delightful timber stalls and beautiful houses.
Day three starts with the traditional Christmas markets of Monschau, one of Western Germany's most beautiful towns, featuring half-timbered houses and a stunning setting. Finally, we include an evening visit to Merode Castle, a romantic venue for a remarkable Christmas market. Seeing the castle lit up by thousands of candles and torches and the Christmas village sparkling within the castle grounds will be an unforgettable experience.
